Cable Testing

The quality and reliability of BKSTEC’s fiber optic cables are ensured by subjecting our products through an extensive battery of tests during R&D, trial production, and manufacturing stage.

Mechanical Quality Testing

BKSTEC’s mechanical testing is essential to stress test the physical limitations of our cables. While being part of the manufacturing process, mechanical testing is also needed during the design phase to ensure each part of the cable meets the customer’s requirements.
Plugging and removing the cable, applying force against cable housing, tripping over, or accidental pulls are common scenarios, and BKSTEC ensures each device produced is able handle these situations. Failing to do so can result in costly RMAs and loss of confidence from users.  
While some tests are defined by HDMI’s Licensing administration and USB-IF, BKSTEC includes further tests to replicate real-life scenarios to exceed these standards and specifications.

High-Temperature Module Test

BKSTEC’s Proprietary Testing Ensures its HDMI Fiber Optic Cables can Withstand up to 167°F (75°C)
